Hopes and Dreams

The rain began a couple of days ago, and although, not the monsoons yet (they say it is the tail end of storms in northern India), ithas been a nice change in the weather esp.  the temperature.  Rain cools it down quite a bity–even turned off A/C in my room!   Although we felt the grounds and plantlife was tropical and lush prior to the rain–we can sure see the difference now that everything has had a good drink.  Green, green, green! 

In between rains we had a chance to go visit the Imperial Hospital Building Site.  This building represents the hopes and dreams of our sponsor and it has now become a hope and dream of my own, to help in any way to see it to fruition.  The construction site is huge, it was conceived by an American architect.  The workers on the construction site that we observed are young and very hard working and move materials around the site (which is in a swail, so multiple levels) by hand .

We plan to return to Chittagong for the commissioning of the hospital and the opening of the School of Nursing, if not before.  Getting close to departure day and our hearts are a little heavy…
